"Well, I don't always agree [with] what he thinks, and I tell him that".

First, the 48-year-old faced criticism for her decision to wear a white "pith" helmet on safari in Kenya. The pith helmet was popularized in the late 19th century and favored by British officers in Africa so that it's become at symbol of colonial rule and oppression.

The U.S. first lady said the message of her tour to Ghana, Malawi, Kenya and Egypt was to show the world that "we care".

Quickly, people across the globe slammed her because the hat was similar to the one used by colonial masters in Kenya.

"She's still largely a mystery to the American people because she maintains her largely low profile", said Katherine Jellison, who studies first ladies at Ohio University.

"Meeting those children and understanding their different way of life is why I wanted to travel here", she said after the school visit. "It is a lovely thing to see".
